Lyrics

Truck Stop

She remembers 6
7 and 8 years old
Daddy's little princess
What she touched turned into gold
Dreamed that she would be a star
And make her mom so proud
Now at 17
Just a face lost in the crowd

Shoppin' trips with mom
Trout fishin' with your dad
Everyday was magic
Not a single day was bad
Expectations of a 6 year old
Are at best hard to achieve
Now at 17
Don't know what she can believe

(chorus)

Workin' at a truck stop
Makin' sandwiches all day
Tryin' to make a livin'
On a sandwich-makers' pay
Would you like a burger
Or a BLT today
But workin' at a truck stop
Have to put your dreams away

With a child of only 6 months
Easy to forget your dreams
What matters is your baby
Not the sadness in your screams
Reconcile the register
Or you'll be on the street
Clean the tables sweep the floor
Try to make the place look neat

(chorus)

Workin' at a truck stop
Makin' sandwiches all day
Tryin' to make a livin'
On sandwich-makers' pay
Would you like a burger
Or a BLT today
But workin' at a truck stop
Have to put your dreams away

(bridge)

I wish I could make unhappen
Those things that make you cry
Lord knows that I'm no magician
But I'll just keep prayin'
Prayin' that you're happy
Til the day I die

(chorus)

Workin' at a truck stop
Makin' sandwiches all day
Tryin'to make a livin'
On a sandwich-makers' pay
Would you like a burger
Or a BLT today
But workin' at a truck stop
Have to put your dreams away

Charles, I've heard some better songs you've had reviewed and I'm always glad to listen to another one anytime. This ballad two step country song is the right length and yet may have a limited group to relate to the story line about dreams that were never achieved. Understanding that it's a still a fair song for one among the other hits songs I've heard you write before. There wasn't a question in regards to specific points you'd like me to review in Truck Stop but I look forward to reviewing more through Pro Broadjam.com other songs you've written. Thank you.
